    I don't typically shop at Walmart for anything, but especially the one near my house, as they typically have a half an aisle of children's costumes and that's it. This weekend I went to a new bigger Walmart, and was shocked to see aisles and aisles of Halloween decorations...sorry I don't have pics, but must say I was really impressed...I'll have to go back next weekend and pick up some stuff.

    It takes a while, but eventually it's rock hard. Yeah, shop towels are much slower at sucking up the paint. You could spritz them with a little water first to see if that helps suck the paint up. Even with the regular paper towels, you have to do a little massaging to get it all through. That's awesome! Reminds me of those South American mummies.

    Yep, 50/50 acrylic and balloon latex works well. You might wipe the surface of the mask with naptha if you can get it first to open up the pores of the rubber and help it bite. You can get latex at special effects supply places like Frends Beauty in Los Angeles. I'm sure there are places closer to you, but they'll ship it. 16 oz is probably all you need

    Looking good! Yeah, hot glue won't do much to bond PVC. You can get PVC cement from the plumbing section, or put screws in the connectors. I generally work with connectors only where I need to branch off multiple pieces of pipe. For shoulders and elbows, I use a heat gun to create the bends. It's stronger and cheaper than PVC connectors, and it gives you more flexibility in the poses.
